Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

I am Beatrix Potter

I am an author and illustrator
I wonder if animals can talk
I hear Noel telling me to write more stories

I see animals playing
I want kids to read my books
I am an author and illustrator

 

I pretend that I am Mrs. Tiggy Winkle

I feel happy when I am around animals

I touch animals soft fur
I worry that kids will not like my books

I cry that animals will be hurt
I am an author and illustrator

 

I understand Noel liked the letter
I say, “Animals should be free.”
I dream the animals will not be hurt
I try to help the animals
I hope people will not hurt the animals

I am an author and illustrator
